Sarasota Premises Liability Lawsuits

Property owners have a duty to take reasonable measures to protect individuals who inhabit their property, either temporarily or permanently, from undue or unnecessary risk. Depending on the circumstances however, the defendant’s obligation to an individual on his or her property may vary. The plaintiff – the individual filing the lawsuit against the property owner – will be classified as an “invitee,” a “licensee,” or a “trespasser,” depending on the circumstances of the case. The defendant’s degree of duty to the plaintiff depends on how the plaintiff is classified by the court.

Invitee – Someone who is an invitee is welcomed onto premises for commercial reasons, either implicitly or expressly. An example of an invitee would be a customer shopping at a convenience store or department store. Property owners owe invitees the highest duty of care; if an invitee is injured as a result of an unreasonable risk, or a risk that could have been prevented if the owner of the premises properly exercised his or her duties, the owner may be considered liable for the injury.

Licensee – A licensee is someone who is invited onto premises, either expressly or implicitly, for reasons other than commercial transactions. A house guest, for example, is a licensee, not an invitee. A defendant owes a licensee a duty as well, though not to the same degree that he or she would owe an invitee. Typically, a plaintiff who is a licensee is only eligible for financial compensation if he or she suffered an injury because the owner of the premises failed to reasonably protect his or her guest and inform him or her of known risks.

Trespasser – An individual who is a trespasser is a person who enters onto premises without the consent of the property owner. Property owners have the least duty to protect trespassers from harm. It can be very difficult for a trespasser to obtain financial compensation for an injury sustained on a property.
